for health care. and he gets bogged down in the details, and even though romney lied repeatedly and sounded like a doefer on crack, he was just intense and focused on the attack. and what is also funny about the spread between people that thought romney won versus people who thought obama won is i also think democrats are more likely to admit, yeah, okay. our guy won, than during kerry -- when bush got crushed. i don't think a lot more republicans are going to cling to their -- their good. >> stephanie: that's a good example, and i have seen others this weekend and look at how that turned out. so i don't think it means that it is over. >> no, no. i have not changed my opinion that obama is still going to win the election. i don't think it is that much of a game changer, but i want it to be a big crushing victory. i want it to be something where obama cannot be denied the mandate going in where republicans at some point just look absurd constantly blocking things. >> stephanie: and we'll see if people were right about the rope a dope. >> oh that is so hopeful. i love cling

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: now mitt romney is way down in the polls in swing states. i told you about that before. i even called the election. i think he's in huge, huge trouble. in tomorrow night's debate he needs a knockout punch. this is part of his problem the media loves to call everything even. find out if you analyze the substance, then you would be bias. that would not help mitt romney's cause any way. that would put him in bigger trouble. the last presidential debates, i love this fact. have you seen this? you probably saw it on "the young turks," and that's about it. the media, do you remember them saying, the declared winner is this guy. they said george bush was the winner of the al gore debate, wrong again, bob. eight out of the last nine presidential debates, gore-bush, bush-kerry obama-mccain won by the democrats. they were polled right after the debates the american people every single time. well eight out of nine, hey you know what, the democrat is the clear winner. so you never see that in the media. oh, my god, i got to be neutral s
. i think he let us all down. i hate to say it. look romney came to play. i think -- romney came to play and president obama stayed home. listen. i looked at it not just as an obama supporter but as somebody who loves debate and has made a living out of debating. and started out -- look, in -- i was on the debate team in high school. i the debate team -- in delaware. i was on the debate team at niagara university. when i went to college. i coached debate. my father judged high school in philadelphia. i debated on crossfire on the spin room, on msnbc. i've debated on the road with bob novack ay and bill crystal and mary madeline and you name them. armstrong williams. alan keys, i can't remember all of the conservatives i've been on the road with. so debate is sort of my thing. i'm sorry to say it, on points and on style, mitt romney won last debate. he came to play. obama did not. and it's not that -- i don't know what it w the president decided he wasn't going to get down and dirty but he just let mitt rom

come too far to turn back now. >> eliot: not if you're mitt romney. the g.o.p. contender talked down the jobs numbers and the economy at an abingdon, virginia, rally. >> romney: there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> eliot: mitt just can't stand good news on the economy, and neither can his friends on the right, including knocks fuss anchor stuart varney who suspect politics were behind the jobs numbers. >> oh how convenient that the rate dropped below 8% for the in 43 months five weeks before the election. >> eliot: unbelievable jobs numbers, these guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. tweeting in regards to today's jobs report, i agree with jack welch, chicago style politics is at work here. more about jack welch and g.e. and accurate numbers more in this show later. we have an interview with cnbc. >> we have a very professional civil ser
bounces. it is already coming back down -- the polls were moving in romney's direction a few days before the debate kind of that natural, kind of movement of polls post convention and this certainly accelerated it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesda

. we'll talk about that a little bit later, and talk about mitt romney trying to take down big bird, nobody was really in favor of that, i think. our phone number here is 866-55-press 866-557-7377 and, you know, we're talking about how barack obama is being treated. i have one more clip of john sununu that we didn't play in the last segment. not only did he call the president lazy and unattached but he also said the president needs to learn how to be an american. >> men and women all over america who have worked hard to build their businesses from the ground up is how our economy became the enemy of the world. it is the american way, and i wish this president would learn how to be an american. >> jamal: wow. so learn how to be an american. born in hawaii to a kansas mother. raised by his grandmother, his grandfather was a world war ii veteran, and educated in new york and massachusetts, needs to learn how to be an american, an american president. how about that. let's talk first to betty in california. what do you think? >> caller: i think he has been treated
they are either undermining the recovery as mitt romney did today when he said this. >> romney: the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact more and more people have just stopped looking for work. but if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as when the president got elected our unemployment would be around 11%. >> jennifer: so they are either undermining the recovery or there must be a conspiracy. with the day that that fails to support their policies the right has resorted to conspiracy, and who better to show how far the so-called party of business has fallen than jack welsh, romney support and former ceo of general electric a titan of capitalism. today he traded in his green eye shades for a tin hat and tweeted this . . . >> jennifer: and then just in case you rubbed your guys in disbelief -- he didn't really just say that bureau of labor statistics is cooking the books for president obama would you. then he doubled down on it on tv. >> it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than -- any surge sinc
. and that meant i had to reach across the aisle -- >> what would you do as president. >> romney: i'll sit down with leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every month for -- monday for a couple of hours. there's common ground and the challenges america faces right now -- the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting in this country, and this deficit could crush the future generations. there are developments around the world that are of real concern and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership in washington that will bring people together and get the job done, and could not careless if it is a republican or a democrat. i have dope it before and i'll do it again. >> mr. president. >> obama: governor romney will have a very busy first day, because he is also going to repeal obamacare. but my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anyone as long as they are advancing the opportunities for middle class families. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our e
that chess game. i think he's inextricably tied to ryan, and i hate to see t but they'll have to double down and have the of a presidential presence. that's what is going to make the difference for romney. the substance isn't. i think seeming presidential, going in as an underdog, which is he is going as president that's the only hope he has. and that's very slim. >> if it's that hopeless in the debate, he may have less hope than i realized. great analysis. now when we come back, there is a new hollywood movie out against teachers' unions. the conservatives have figured it out, go hollywood. this is pretty nefarious. i'll show you the real reason why think made this movie. [ bell ringing ] >> go, we're late, go, g. >> 9 adults in this situation are disagreeing to such a point we're not making the changes we need to make to serve our kids, we're all failing. >> cenk: maggie gyllenhaal is a real progressive but i think she's on the wrong track on this. and later in the show, the elbow of the day. who gave it on tyt on current. we'll take your guess there is. >>now that's politically direct.
